to tap the brakes on the feds' bond buying program designed to lower interest rates and spur the economy. fox business network senior washington correspondent peter barns has an update. >> good evening. the fed says the central bank could be getting ready to wind down the easy money policies it has been using for the last five years to help the economy recover from the great recession, the first to slow and then to go, the controversial bond buying program, known as quantitative easing, which helped keep interest rates low. so far, the fed purchased $2.5 trillion in bonds to help flood the financial system with cash, basically printing new money. purchases help keep rates low for auto loans, mortgages and business loans. the fed chairman had cars on his mind when he said his team could start reducing purchases later this year, if the economy keeps growing and unemployment keeps dropping. >> if incoming data support that the economy can sustain a reasonable cruising speed, we will ease the pressure on the accelerator by gradually reducing pace of purchases. however, any need to consider a
much that is costing the european economy, european jobs, and the european government? guest: at the moment, we are asking our citizens to do a lot of sacrifice in order to adjust to the impact of the financial crisis. we cannot allow a number of people to escape, a number of people to evade their tax responsibilities. so, i think this was a powerful message from the g8. very much supported and initiated by the europeans to make sure that our tax system is assumes itsverybody responsibilities in terms of and that when we ask normal citizens to make sacrifices, we should at the same time ensure that any of the people that tries to escape this sanctions -- is sanctions. cooperation among states is an effective one, and this is what they discussed in the g8 and what we are implementing. we are happy to see that we are on the same wavelength with the americans. host: what about switzerland? is which alone one of those locations used as a tax haven? guest: switzerland is not part of the european union, but we have a solid relationship with switzerland. we made a number of agreemen

, and the future in 30 minutes. talking about how you size up the economy today, how we got into such a bad place in 2008, and what economic policy makers need to do next. i would like to start talking about the present. how do you assess the global economy and the u.s. economy, and the extent to which there is any momentum or possibility for faster growth? >> basically, i would describe both the united states and the rest of the world as being in a sluggish environment where effective demand, if we can use that old-fashioned term, is inadequate to galvanize the system in the growth. yet there is not enough downside weakness to create any significant short-term changes that i can see. there are very huge imbalances out there. what i find startling is there are so many things -- which nothing is happening. for example, the european central bank had this huge trillion-euro rise a couple years ago of the assets in their balance sheet. then it came down a little bit. and for the last several months it has been absolutely flat. in other words, the extent to hich nothing is happening. it is just not cr
stock prices up worldwide and has spurred a recovery in the global economy. but at a hearing before congress on march 22nd, ben bernanke hinted at the possibility of scaling down the monetary easing policy. >> if we seek continued improvement and we have confidence that is going to be sustained, then we could in the next few meetings take a step down in our pace of purchases. >> the remarks triggered worldwide market volatility. the following day the nikkei and tokyo index stumbled. comments also changed the currently trends and the dollar briefly fell to the 93 yen level earlier this month. economists point out that chairman bernanke's comments could positively impact the japanese economy if it can get rid of market uncertainties. >> translator: once the u.s. policy direction becomes clear, investors may move more into riskier assets then the yen could again enter a declining trend and spur hopes for stock market advance. >>> it hasn't been long since the idea of 3d printing seem like pure fantasy. now the people who make these machines are displaying their latest models as one of
: both sides are addressing the economy, to bring growth back. it is not easy. we are facing enormous challenges on both sides. we have different kinds of responses, different kinds of contacts in america. i think the common concern is to make sure the recovery is a sustainable one that we don't go in an up and down in terms of economic performance. i think we have established a few lines that are common. we need financial stability and we need to increase our competitiveness. we are facing enormous challenges in emerging economies. we need to adjust our economy for training and education and we need the skills in the job market. for the moment i think the g-8 has clearly identified that. we need to join efforts at the international level to create a right position. host: what needs to happen? guest: i think we need to consolidate our accounts and put our house in order in terms of the debt and deficit. that is crucial for our credibility of our efforts. at the same time, we need to invest in a new way, we need to create the sources of competitiveness for the future. so our economies
. the economy is mediocre at best, but even having said all that, that stocks have raced ahead of some of the weakness in the high yield bond market, to me i think still one of the best features of stocks when i talk to individual, and importantly, investors there are still a misuse of stocks when companies are generating an 8% return on equity, and if we get that 10% correction, just grind your way through it, fight your way through it and buy what you thought was too expense ive tod. >> that's an interesting point, because on the feds tapering, that's basically what people are trying to navigate around. rick santelli, give us your sense of what we hear out of bernanke tomorrow and wednesday? >> you can't get hd quality picture on a 1953 philco tv. that's the way i look at it. the markets are looking for answers to an exit strategy that can't be had. some people blame communications. i don't blame communications. i think these programs in their triggers for an exit and the relationships that the fed is trying to fine-tune with this rate of unemployment, this degree of growth in the ec
, even though the economy is growing. too many families feel like they're working working harder and still can't get ahead. inequality is still growing in our society. too many young people aren't sure whether they will be able to match the living standards of parents. we have too many kids in poverty in this country still. there are some basic steps we can take to strengthen the position of working people in this country to help our , to make sureter it's more competitive, and some of that requires political will. some of it requires an abiding passion for making sure everyone in this country has a fair shot area but it also requires good economists. i know it is called the dismal science, but i don't find it at dismal. i think it is actually pretty interesting. staffmes the rest of my thinks obamas getting together with his economists and they're going to have a wonk fest for the next hour, but this stuff matters. in termsa difference of whether or not people get a chance at life and how we optimize this opportunity. everyone gets a caring fornd we are the vulnerable and disabl
that they are not getting what they deserve from the government of the world's sixth largest economy. shepard? >> shepard: steve, these nationwide protests are reportedly some of the biggest demonstrations since the end of brazil's dictatorship back in '85. the country's military regime lasted for more than two decades back then. during that time, violent clashes often broke out between protesters and police. really not sense. authorities in turkey have banned large gatherings all together after weeks of violent antigovernment protests in a key city. so it's come to this. one man trying a peaceful solo protest and there he is. the guy on the right in the white shirt, stood alone for many hours last night. at istanbul's taksim square. stood there and stared. stared aportrait founded turkey as a secular state 90 years ago. many claim turkey's current leaders are forcing islamic agenda on them as word of this standing guy got out. several others stood just like him in different parts of the country. turkish officials say they will take no action as long as these silent protests cause nobody any harm. here a

cannot let this happen because of the economy that the entire issue kind of blew up. agreement whend it is clear that there are political point to be had for keeping your own site? >> there are also political points to be had for having success here. i am surprised that the white house has not recognized how similar the proposals are in said "let's get this done and have a bipartisan issue and move it off the table." can doill hopeful we that. the senate has not been successful in their short-term three forward -- 3.4% to your solution of finding someone to pay for it. this is the direction we are continuing to work for. republicans are very much committed to this approach. it should not be that difficult to do considering the white house on paper position he has a proposal. i mean there is still room. it is early june. >> according to the national journey, if they have objected to the bill because it is the " largest interest-rate increases on middle income students and families families who struggle most to afford a college education." >> i find it interesting that the white house
by the french and germans? >> on the economy it's pretty good. but there's a whole other part of discomfort, if you will, with some european leaders and it more has to do -- their reaction to president obama is just like any other politician's reaction to a politician that may not be as popular as they once were. president obama, the nsa things do not play well over here. there has been a frustration by some on the left in europe that president obama hasn't addressed the issue of climate change more aggressively. that's always been a much more important issue to europeans than it ever has been in the united states. and you sort of take all of that into account and so there certainly is -- you know, the shine has worn off. two years ago when president obama would come over here, you know, you know, figuratively throwing rose pe petals at his feet. he still has a huge audience a few hours ago in belfast for a speech he gave that was addressing northern ireland youth. he's going to get a huge number of people at the brandenburg gate when he makes that speech on the 50th anniversary of jfk spee
speaker. at a time when americans want their elected officials to focus on jobs and building our economy, here we are again focusing our efforts on limiting a woman's ability to make her own health care decisions. as i have heard time and time again from women across this nation, women don't want politicians imposing their extreme beliefs on them when they are making tough decisions. i keep hearing about poll from my colleagues on the other side of the aisle. here is a poll. we just heard about it today. popularity is at an all-time low of 10% and bills like this are exactly why. last session we waited a lot of the american people's time debating and voting on legislation designed solely to take a woman's health care decision out of her hands and that of her doctor and instead to allow politicians to step in and substitute their judgment. the time it could take majority six months of the new session, but here we go again. it is patently unconstitutional last week, after some of us pointed out, the bill's sponsors maneuver to add an attempted exception for rape and victims. to bill now re
be the thing to happen for the united states government and the economy and it's been barely a ripple. heads of state oftentimes make symbolic sacrifices even if they don't balance the budget right away. the president can say i am not going to take a vacation. i'm going to stop golfing. but he has done none of that. the trappings that come with the american presidency. michelle and obama were going to take a safari and there would have to be a sniper team. when t.r. went to africa he carried his own gun and protected himself from a lot of animals. in fact the animals need protection from him. bill: 14 limousines, 3 trucks loaded with bulletproof glass to cover the windows of the hotel where the first family is staying. >> this is bigger than barack obama. if people are concerned about this they have to look at the travel of across net secretaries when they go overseas. bill: you set the example. you show people what you are doing and say this is how we are cutting back. can you give us one example how the white house has cut back since sequestration has cut back? >> they cut off the tours. p
says if the reform bill passes, it would boost the economy and cut the federal deficit by $200 billion in the next decade. but now there are fears it may not happen at all. our political director john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> reporter: morning, charlie. >> so what's the impact of this cbo report? >> reporter: well, i think for those who are pushing comprehensive immigration reform, it's a second big argument for them. they've been making the moral case that the immigration system has to be fixtured. now they can make an economic case that it's actually good for the economy. and critics, though, of this have seen a kind of push to get this bill rammed through. and so a lot of conservatives think that cbo is kind of tweaking the numbers here. they don't believe this will be good for the economy at all. >> john, what does it portend for the future of the immigration bill in the house when a key committee just passed a bill that would make it a federal crime to be in the united states illegally? >> reporter: the central tension to watch in this bill is between get

no luxury accommodation versus sort of just what we see as economy today. there were cost overruns and was never completed, however, the german red cross was set up there to help the survivors initially. they were essentially processed and sent on their way. helga's story takes another turn in the remarkable in that she finally gets on the train to start heading towards the west. the idea was that these refugees wanted to end up in allied hands. they were hoping to make to the british or the american lines. she was on a train during the dresden firebombing, but she does eventually make it to california where she finally arrived in about 1948. and here is an actual official boarding pass for the gustloff. most people aboard the gustloff of course didn't have any official documentation. those were handed out in a very first days of the boarding when it was still somewhat orderly, and that would've been around again the 27th and 28th of january, 1945. after that the situation just comes out of control and people are just pushing their way onto the ship. so because of that most people
told the new york times quote, i think it is a stupid idea to bring this up. the economy is on everybody's mind. we are seeing staggering jobs numberes. confidence in the institution of government is eroding. why are republicans still going down this road right now, congresswoman? even though bewe both know that there this has in chance of ever passing. >> it is so interesting. people say, maybe the senate should dictate everything that gets done in washington, d.c. if we did that, the senate, my goodness, we couldn't get them to ps pass a budget for five years. this is something that american people have said, you need to do something about this. women have said, you need to do something about late term abortions. there's a tremendous amount of public support for taking an action, for putting a ban on late term abortions. >> congresswoman, is this purely pandering? >> no, it is not pandering at all. it is saving the life of women and of babies pandering? absolutely not. i can't believe you would say something like that. >> congresswoman -- >> my goodness! >> the presiden

programs will affect the companies and will it impact of the internet economy overall? again i will use a little discretion and say i have three points i want to highlight. having gone to 20 eu member states to talk about government information carrying in my role as the u.s. department of homeland security privacy officer, and to say, don't worry, this was only used 96 times in 2010 -- i'm going to tell you. the relationship with the european union and the european commission are likely irreparably damaged. i used to say, no, believe me. don't worry. it will be fine. they would say, we don't believe you. you lie to us about guantanamo. you lie to us about rendition. now they have a third one in there. i also think that the concept of government and transparency has been harmed and particularly the nine named companies and at the same time the other elements, the other companies operating in this space, will have a cloud over their heads, saying, well, are you participating in this? what is the access? the point on transparency is going to have to be a thing we development. to affect th
economy, about jobs, i've talked about transportation, i've talked about the relationship of the individual citizen and their government and how that relationship works or sometimes doesn't work lately. but this is a time just to be able to pause for a moment and not talk about necessarily some new government law or some new regulation but to celebrate for justice a -- just a moment dads. with father's day this past weekend and to be able to hesitate again and be able to say thanks to my own dad, but to also talk about the fact that it is the love of our life , for men to be able to enjoy their children just like it is for ladies to be able to enjoy their children as well as a mom. there's something very unique. and i believe firmly that every child needs a mom and needs a dad. they come at parenting from two different directions and they together make such a dramatic difference in the life of a child. to have a mom and to have a dad. it's interesting to me that the last verse in the old testament in that verse from maliki can 4:6, it ends that new testament by saying, the
not really so much just for the party but potentially for the health of the country and the economy. so that's where you would put your effort. the bottom line on this, though, i think, ultimately for republicans is where is the incentive? life is not very complicated. no matter what your job is, you have to get something done. for these house republicans there's very little incentive to vote for something. to van's point they're going to get primaried. almost all of them do. the average republican district right now is 75% light. there are nine republicans in the house who represent a majority/minority district. even those who sit in heavy districts have a significant latino population, they're also very republican districts. you have to -- the speaker has to find a way to get those folks to vote against their most immediate incentive, which is to be re-elected. >> fortunately we have republicans who look past their district boundaries and look past it and hopefully there's enough of those. i'm an optimist. >> coming up on "the lead," a new tip for a search in a field for jimmy hoffa's body
